Ledoux for <$5000?

Ledoux Acoustique speakers are handcrafted in Magog, Quebec, each speaker signed by designer Patrice Ledoux. The Ledoux Concert 5 ($1595/pair) formed the centerpiece of a sub-$5000 system that included a Ledoux Gaia-10 subwoofer ($1950, Cambridge 651A integrated amp ($795), and Blue Circle BC6000Si power line conditioner ($1295). If you do the math, you'll see that the total is $5635. I questioned M. Ledoux about this discrepancy, and he said that this system could be sold as a "show special" at $5000.

Also, there was no source component included in the price. The system actually sounded quite nice with a Cambridge Audio CD player in the system, but I doubt if they would throw that in for the $5000.

...but nothing gets passed industry pro Robert Deutsch.

Given your language skills I don't think you would want to be questioning anyone's inclination to tote up a few list prices.

Following your gentle guidance, I tried fixing my passed/past misspelling, but it seems that editing passed - oops, past - comments is not possible on this site. Still, thank you for setting me straight. You obviously have an enormous heart, to be willing to share your editing skills with me at no charge. You're the man, Stan. The Internet needs more people like you to make it a better place.

I was being as big hearted as you were in your original comment. Now you weep, and struggle with the "edit" button. 'Tis life.

Ur korrect: absolutely brilliant play on the English language. I would have expected nothing less from a word-slinger like you. Bravo, Stan! You are, however, wrong in your assumption that I was being mean-spirited in my initial comment; I'm just not a d--khead like that. Anyway, keep up the good fight, my friend. And keep those klever Ks koming! (Now you weep, and struggle to understand how you got KO'd. K-O'd. Get it, Stan?)
